you dont need 10 characters anymore now

Also halls suck, it was cheaper to rent with peeps you already know, no council tax as students dont need to pay

The halls that my mates stayed at were awful, the shared kitchen is a no no its only a matter of time b4 sum1 steals your milk

I was too lazy to fill out the form for accomodation, so in my first year I was searching for somewhere to live two days before freshers week began. I ended up sharing a house with 4 people who didn't know each other and it was hell. Toothpaste, toilet roll, shaving cream, food, rent cheques, and clothes were all stolen at some point that year (not all from me). Loud music and pungent odours emanated from some rooms, and the cleaning of the communal areas was like a game of chicken, the first one to decide the kitchen and bathroom had reached an unacceptable level cleaned them all year.

I also spent a few months at uni stepping over letters informing the occupants that we were to be prosecuted for not having a TV licence, but the only thing I learned from that is that "final warning" is a hollow threat, and if you ignore the letters for long enough they'll give up or you'll move out.

It was alright. The trick was to spend as little time in the house as possible, and once I learned to enjoy exacting revenge on the others I started to look forward to the next bout.

Second year I lived with more people who didn't know each other. They were alright, except one guy who never came out of his room.

Third year I lived with my girlfriend and three others who I'd never met. That was a very up and down year.

Halls are stupidly expensive this year. My girlfriend has got a proper flat with her mate and thats cheaper than it would be to stay halls this year.

I only ever stayed in halls when i was at uni just cus they were across the road from uni.

Mostly they were good but i did have a really annoying flat mate in first year. he has a huge sub in his room and he put it against the wall that joined to my room. every so often my whole wall would shake when he put it on. the guys upstairs kept complaining cus the sub shook their floor. it was stupid, you couldnt hear the music over the rumble of the sub

Halls are alright to meet new people and get some good sessions going, etc. but I left* the halls at Christmas in my first year and got my own flat. I can tell you it's a bit more responsibility (paying bills and other shit) but the freedom to sit in your underpants smoking copious amounts of the ganja and playing the playstaion all Tuesday afternoon will make your balls tingle :-bd :
































*Got kicked out of


(Warning: following the above example may cause failing of your first year (twice) and severe boredum stacking shelves in Sainsburys.)

Huh, seems I was lucky in halls. Met a friend who I lived with for the following three years and another good mate, just from my flat of 6 rooms. Of course the other three were an uber goth (I have nothing against them, they're just not the most people-person-er-people), the world's most boring man and a girl who (we think) tried to commit sooeeside. She's alright now though apparantly. A doctor too.

So 2 out of 5 ain't bad.

Then 3 years living with the same 3 mates, with one extra body rotating each year. One of which was a psycho woman.

But yeah, move out after the first year with into a house with mates. Tis much more fun, plus you get a proper lounge to do, well, whatever in.

Bit disappointed at you there Willy & Damus. I suppose it was a bit obscure though, a Coogan creation:

"Paul Calf first began as a character named 'Duncan Disorderly' in Coogan's early stand-up routines. Calf first came to wider public notice in 1993 with several appearances on Saturday Zoo, a late night variety show presented by Jonathan Ross on Channel 4. Paul has appeared in two video diaries, an episode of Coogan's Run, and in various stand-up performances. He is an unemployed Mancunian wastrel with a particular hatred of students. His catchphrase is "Bag of shite."

Paul lives in a council house in the fictional town of Ottle with his mother and his sister, Pauline Calf (also played by Coogan). His father died some time before the first video diary was made. For a long time he was obsessed with getting back together with his ex-girlfriend, Julie. Paul's best friend is "Fat" Bob (played by John Thomson), a car mechanic who eventually married Pauline. Paul supports Manchester City and is very partial to Wagon Wheels. He wears Burton suits, sports a bleached mullet and drives a Ford Cortina.
